They did a podcast with Amy who admitted that many of the contestants had gone to the producers about what the twins were doing and no action was taken. Being Heidi is an executive producer - they all knew what was going on but decided to ignore it to create more drama.

There is nothing real anymore when it comes to reality TV. Producers know who they want to win and create challenges that lean towards their perceived winners strengths. Don't want to lose a drama contestant too soon - find a way to keep them.

Brandon is the fair haired boy this season - but unless he starts coming up with outfits that fit the challenge - this is a waste of time. I predicted Amy and he would be the bottom 2 and yet - he was in the top four. Brandon seems like a great guy but his outfits are always the same and don't excite me.

Ayana deserved that win. Her look was incredible.

Claire's response when Tim was questioning her was immature and disrespectful. The way she answered his question about having the tape measure without making eye contact or showing any remorse made me want to smack her. What a brat!

Oh, I hope not. The two of them were just hired to play a particular role, and everything they said came across as really bad acting. Which is was. Don't want to see or hear anything more about them.

Didn't she make the pink blob? I personally didn't care for it.

I am so underwhelmed this season with the designers. Brandon has great ideas, but is definitely a one trick pony. I was shocked he was in the top.

The twin drama.... thank god it is over. So ridiculous.

Agree with this 100%. She was similar throughout the season whenever her looks were questions by the judges. Especially on the runway for the team challenge when she and Shawn were in the bottom.

YEA! Twins are GONE!


I love Brandon's stuff. I'd wear pretty much all of it.


Glad Michael got the win, but there were a lot of very good garments on the runway.


Haven't really liked Amy's stuff all season.

Brandon is very likeable, but I agree that his designs are always the same. The fact, too, that the judges aren't calling him on it as often as they should, makes me think he's their favorite.

One season (I think the season Christian Siriano won) they were constantly on a top designer (the one who was fond of "draping"--his models all looked like Grecian goddesses) for presenting the same look. Nina, in particular, kept telling him his "look" was repetitive and that she wanted to see more from him. Those comments were so frequent that he finally responded and questioned why he should change successful designs. Brandon seems to be getting a pass.

Glad Claire is gone! I didn't feel bad for her either!
Loved, the pink outfit! Yes it was outrageous, and yes, it was out there, but that's what the avant garde, challenge is all about! Michael's was just ok. I also liked Margarita's creation! It was just a little over the top, and still tasteful!

Brandon, just no! Nothing avant garde about it! The same damn design he does every week! And the judges, don't call him out on it!

Wow, I do wonder about if the twins have sunk any design aspirations they had? It was said that they have been designing for awhile and even for Katy Perry - now after all this is anyone going to hire them? Will they be the laughing stock of the design world? Or had they already decided to walk away from design and try for a reality show career or just get married and get a normal job?
